Great display of the female. The tip of the abdomen looks slightly out of focus, being a bit closer to the camera.
I would not touch the plant it's perched on Very Happy

The wing venation, out of focus in many such images, is captured well.

Love the colors on the abdomen. Reminds me of a Coral Or Scarlet King snake.

Superb. The well-placed shadow of the male is a bonus.

These are very nice, Graham. Very Happy

I like images 1 & 3 just the way they are.

The background of image 2 has a pattern of straight lines with a harsh bokeh that I find distracting. I played a little with blur-and-mask in Photoshop, and found that I liked it better with the background filtered Gaussian Blur, 7 pixels. Just a thought, your tastes may differ!
